We offer additional care levels when guests need more support or help with personal tasks. The amount of assistance and support required affect charges for care.
Care Levels in Assisted Living
at The Pearl At Fairview
The Pearl at Fairview offers 38 single bedroom Assisted Living Suites. Each suite includes basic housekeeping and laundry services. Each resident receives basic care from our team. Each resident is included in all activities they choose. Each resident is offered three meals a day, seven days a week, snacks and access to beverages – all they need or want.
When residents require additional services and support from our facility and team it affects the amount of time and labor needed. It affects the price.
Care Level Assessments are done every 30 days for the safety of our residents. Our nursing staff conducts the assessments with the input of care givers. The resident’s physician may also provide information that contribute to the assessment. The resident’s family contributes to the assessment. Family can notice and identify changes in demeanor, personality and overall perceived quality of life.
Care Levels are important to the basic care and wellbeing of our residents. Personal safety, hygiene, and overall quality of life depend on our understanding and supporting the needs of our residents.
For many of our residents, there comes a point in care when The Pearl At Fairview is no longer able to provide the services and support needed. We will do our best to provide families with information and assistance in locating services to meet the needs of the resident. It may mean your loved one will have to move to receive the best care possible. This makes us sad. It is unfortunately part of life and aging.
Please ask us the difficult questions you may need to ask.
What affects the care level assessment?
Physical abilities are evaluated. The ability to get in and out of bed with or without assistance, the ability to dress one’s self, the ability to bathe or to use the restroom, the ability to get to the dining room or feed one’s self. Falls are our greatest concern. Providing more attention, when it’s required for resident safety, is the objective of care level need and understanding. The assessment process is the formal evaluation by all involved to be sure.
Cognitive abilities are evaluated. Being aware or remembering to do things, like get up or go eat. The need for assistance in remembering to take medication or the need for assistance in administering medications.
Does Care Level affect the price?
The care level absolutely affects the price. The greater the need of care, the greater the time and resources we devote to an individual resident, the greater the cost to us and the greater the price we must charge.
Resident safety, comfort and quality of life are our objectives. When the needs of the resident change, and they will as they progress through the aging process, the need for support and assistance will change. This will change their Care Level. This will change the price we charge.
We are going to say it again. There will come a time their need for care and support will be greater than our assisted living facility is capable and able to provide. Long live the queen!
